if folding slow is a problem, perhaps the core is bad. stop folding delete the core, and when you restart, it'll download a new core. this might help, though it might not. it's worth a try though.

maxing performace is good. just running the program and helping out is good too.

btw, i have a comp that uses the -advmethods -forceasm -verbosity 9 flags (all three comps config'd the same). i haven't touched it, and it's back doing a gromacs wu. keep the flags, and run the wu's. if Stanford hands out tinkers, then that's what's on the menu.

I've gotten a few tinkers with these flags in place, and it's no trouble, so long as it's not one of the stupid 1 point ones.

Yea, that worked for me, the F@H was extremely unstable, then Len444 suggested I redownload at a non-overclocked state. Worked like a charm 8)

and install non OC'd. pretty much a general rule in installing any software.

I install just about everything overclocked on my part - not one issue yet, and my fah runs perfect.

there's always going to be a variation of what you can get away with. general rules are just that- a generalization. i've helped a couple of people so far by asking if OC'd, and to drop it- and most in that respect had things work out better by doing so. universal advice for a broad spectrum of pc builds (and many variables relevant to motherboards, cpu's, memory modules, ram timings, cpu temps/ ventilation, ect...).

True. Each situation will have it's variables and end up with different results.
